I want to make an object move, then stop for several frames, and then move again. When I do this, Lightwave makes a curve between the two keyframes. How can I make it stay motionless?

My latest amateur effort is here:

Go to the Graph Editor. Select the object in the Channels tab. Then double click the axis in which it is moving. Select the two key frames where you want it motionless. Then go down to Incoming Curve, and select Linear. And if you are moving on more than one axis, you will have to do the same thing for each axis (i.e. X axis, Y axis, etc.). That should do it.

Thanks! I'll give it a try.
